The Forcepoint Security Manager is the central configuration interface used to manage Forcepoint Web, Email, and Data solutions. Use its Web module to customize policies, generate reports, monitor the system, and manage configuration and settings.
At installation, the Security Manager is set up to give full access to all modules to a single administrator account: admin. The password for this account is set during installation.
Until a subscription key has been entered, when a Super Administrator logs on and selects the Web module, an Initial Setup Checklist is displayed. Use the checklist to enter your subscription key and perform basic initial configuration tasks.
Once a key has been entered and validated, administrators connecting to the Web module are taken to the Status > Dashboard page.

When you log on to the Security Manager, the Web module connects to the default (base) Policy Server specified during installation. To manage another Policy Server, select its IP address from the Policy Server drop-down list in the Web Security toolbar.
A Security Manager session ends 22 minutes after the last action taken in the user interface (clicking from page to page, entering information, caching changes, or saving changes). A warning message is displayed 2 minutes before the session ends.

If you close the browser without logging off of the Security Manager, or if the remote machine from which you are accessing the Security Manager shuts down unexpectedly, you may be temporarily locked out. The management components typically detect this issue within about 2 minutes and end the interrupted session, allowing you to log on again.
